INHUMAN REMNANTS

Inattentional Blindness

(Eschatonic Records)

Reviewed by : Jason Deaville
Rating : 8.0

Remember deathcore, that self-effacing middle child of death metal, forever the black-sheep of the family, lingering in the shadows of his older, far more brutal brother and sister, grindcore and gorecore? Well, with several, hard-working, core-experimenting years under his belt, which has seen many of his peers (such as the revered DESPISED ICON) call it a day, deathcore has decided to step out of the stifiling shadows of his siblings, instigating a rivalry that would make the likes of Cain and Abel cringe. Reborn under the guise of Australia's INHUMAN REMNANTS, sprawling, gargantuan riffs, and old school (MORBID ANGEL, DYING FETUS) meets new school (RINGS OF SATURN, WHITECHAPEL) aesthetics are combined to create some of the catchiest, fastest, and refreshing core-tinged death metal you'll hear all year. Perhaps the band might take issue with my classification, but there is definitely a palpable sense of core dynamics on their latest EP, entitled Inattentional Blindness - those oh so prevalent breakdowns and sweeps. The difference, this time, is the context with which those elements are used. The breakdowns are now of the SUFFOCATION variety, while the sweeps have been mutated into technically-proficient-yet-sublime leads. While the deathcore of Inhuman Remnants might intentionally distance itself from that of his siblings, there is no arguing the influence and admiration for his kin. His uniqueness and, ultimately, success, lies in his deceptive ability at incorporating their influence whilst forging his own unique path of brutality, one which sees he him hanging out and jamming with his cool, out-of-town cousins in THE BERZERKER, namely speedcore and gabber.
